For those of you going to Potomac Mills after 8:00 Am...where are your destinations? I may start picking up there, if it benefits me to do so.

At least two of us are slugging to the 14th and K Street area.

I generally go to 14th but ultimately I need to get to 15th and K so if you go 18th, as long as you go up to K I'd be willing to ride. I prefer 14th but since we really need drivers, I'm willing to be flexible.

Don't give up hope. I'm sure the more PM gets used, the more you'll see riders for your destination. It's just going to take some time for PM to take-off again.

I normally pick up from Horner too, but to avoid the madness, I have decided to pick up from PM too. I arrived at PM this morning around 8am, and there were no riders. I am very flexible with my drop off destinations, so I can be swayed easily judging by the number of people waiting.
Eventually some people showed up, and I figured it was well worth the 5 or 10 minute wait. So don't give up on PM's, hang in there!

Are there any riders going to Rosslyn from PM between 7:15 and 8:00 AM? I will be driving approx one week per month on that route (Horner Rd or PM). Thanks.

Does anyone have any good ideas of how we can fix this problem. Someone said they thought it was b/c people from Potomac Mills and Hechingers are starting to park there b/c it was easier to get rides, but I'm not sure the lot can handle all the attention it's getting.

Good ideas needed!!! Maybe we need to bring this to the attention of our county sups. that there is a huge need here????

Yes there is other alternates. You can park at the Overflow parking (Prince William Square on Opitz Blvd) and have 18th street, State Department pick up passengers there. Rosalyn and the Pentagon are still picking up passengers at Potomac Mills. There are plenty of parking and plenty of room to pick up. It is not to far from 95 (HOV) lane. The HOV will fill up before 7:30am. So I will volunteer to start the overflow parking at the Prince William Square on Opitz Blvd. Across the street from Potomac Mills. If we continue to park at Horner Road like this. We are asking for trouble such as accidents, car theft, parking tickets, and getting your car toll. Remember Prince William County police are watching us and they will find the best time to get us especially during the fall and the winter time. Woodbridge 123 parking is too far and it is out of the drivers way when returning back home.

I don't think commuter parking in Prince William Square is allowed anymore, unless they changed their policy again.
